Ah, rule #0 keeps biting me in the ass. "Every system you setup for test and development will be used as a crucial, essential and necessary part of production."
Stuff I setup as a test 3 years ago is now being used by production. 😑
@viciousviscosity Congratulations, your stuff passed the test 😄
@zigg 😅 https://cybre.space/media/I2pDcztlfLoDxnKFctY
@viciousviscosity I've been bitten by that in the past. Now, I kill the box off when I'm done with the test.
I'm also pretty hostile about boxen that aren't marked "as production". A few unscheduled reboots later, the problem gets solved :)
@phessler These series of… unscheduled reboots… this… this could work… 🤔
@viciousviscosity @phessler "deboots"
@viciousviscosity "oh, I was just messing around with my test box. 'sorry' about that"
whether you give air-quotes while saying 'sorry' is up to you. I recommend it.
*relates this to someone*
*said someone pauses, then picks up their work laptop with a faint smile and a gleam in their eyes*
@sydneyfalk @viciousviscosity please pass along a high-five, and hope they don't have the pager
*shows them this toot, they grin and state they return the sentiment, and have the pager TOMORROW*
@viciousviscosity ah @vmann that's why you want me to do testing locally and only set up a VM for production use? :D
@viciousviscosity It. NEVER. Fails.
@viciousviscosity your rule 0 is way more stressful than my rule 0.... 🤔
@gdkar What's your rule 0? Double-tap? Cardio? 😄
@viciousviscosity rule 0: everything is gonna be okay.
rule 1: cars are always real.
rule 2: if you think you can fly, start from the ground
rule 3: rm is forever. mkfs is EXTRA forever.
 OR with multiple trained instructors who know they can fly holding on to you.
@gdkar That is an excellent set of rules. Particularly rule 0. ✅
@viciousviscosity yeah.... they may not have, uhhh, originated in the soberest of contexts, but their honestly pretty widely applicable.
they've also, uh, seen some updates recently. 😅
@gdkar Had some instructor encounters recently, eh? heheh
@viciousviscosity yeeeeeah, a bunch of people i know started skydiving and.... yeah.
@viciousviscosity mostly the observation that actually Accelerated Free Fall training discipline is probably also aight. 🤷
"accelerated freefall training"
...this is how I feel aging. Only forwards, faster, through time forever until I disintegrate.
Ah, yes, the entropy of time, accelerated freefall linear timetravel.
@Mainebot @viciousviscosity seeee.... that's why you're supposed to have two instructors and an AAD the first couple jumps.......
@viciousviscosity @gdkar All will be well!
